Works complete at new £10m manufacturing facility in Mansfield

Midlands contractor G F Tomlinson has announced the completion of a new light manufacturing facility on Hamilton Way, Oakham Business Park, Mansfield.

The £10million scheme sees the construction of a two-storey facility and basement space for a UK leading aerospace manufacturer based in the East Midlands.

The 80,000 sq ft steel frame building features composite insulated cladding to the walls and roof to provide a production facility and headquarters comprising a ground floor with workshop, office and meeting spaces, including staff facilities and a basement level for storage.

Adjacent is an external service yard with two artic loading bays and car parking spaces over three levels for 139 cars. Five gabion retaining walls are also in place across the site – totalling 170 metres in length with a height of 1.2 metres.

As part of the project G F Tomlinson also carried out £3million M&E works, and worked alongside project manager and principal designer Jackson Design Associates and Webb Gray Architects – both firms the contractor has worked with previously on office and industrial schemes elsewhere in Mansfield and in Lichfield.

Chris Flint, Managing Director of G F Tomlinson, said: “We are very pleased to have completed construction works for this impressive industrial facility in Mansfield, which has been designed to meet the end user’s growing manufacturing ambitions, storage and office requirements.

“It is a pleasure to have worked once again with Jackson Design Associates and Webb Gray Architects – two local businesses which each have a wealth of experience in the Midlands region and in this sector.”

David Grieves, senior project manager at Jackson Design Associates, said: “It’s great to see this project completed. The collaborative working relationship with G F Tomlinson helped overcome challenges along the journey, resulting in a successful project delivery. The client can now enjoy the impressive internal space for what they do best.”
